So, um. This is happening. I was reading this boring press release about Oregon Zoo concerts this summer featuring Huey Lewis, Pat Benatar, and some other ok-but-not-worth-spending-money-on acts, and then at the very end of it they kind of almost forgot to mention that FREAKING JOSH RITTER is coming BACK to Portland WITH Lake Street Dive this summer at the zoo. Dang!
This pretty much equals and probably surpasses my awestruck wonder at the Todd Snider, Hayes Carll, Sarah Jarosz, Shawn Mullins zoo announcement from around this time last year. I can’t quite catch my breath. It’s real. We’re going. My kids can go. Incredible. Just have to hold out until next Friday until I can get on the “promo” list for earlier tickets. Wow.
